I love Sunday nights

I hate my camera strap so I am going to make a new one
crochet camera strap

 I like these.

 the John Mayer obsession coming back into my life. 

"Because life is just too short to keep playing the game. 
Because if you really want somebody, you’ll figure it out later. 
Otherwise you’ll just be laying in bed alone with your Blackberry on your chest hoping that it goes “bbbbbfffff. bbbbbfffff.”

VHLxEA on Make A Gif, Animated Gifs

I learned how to make gifs, and I say gif like the peanut butter (jif)

white dress, welcome back

They used to sell this dress at urban, I was in love but it was mad expensive
like 70 bones
then one day I found it at buffalo(insert angel sound here)
it was crazy worn, had holes in it, nail polish stains.
It was my GO TO dress, I wore it at least once a week.
but then one drunken football tailgate I spilled red wine all over my lovely dress
after, my now ex roomie and I made a deal if we ever saw it 
buy it no matter what
(peep my little mermaid temporary tat,
its making me really want an arm tattoo.)
And magic shit happened and she found it at savers yesterday
Im so happy to have it back.

Playing around with my new camera and editing photos on photoshop and iPhoto.
I like both the more antiquey one and this one
I think the wood looks awesome.


Today we organized a fundraiser for one of my social work classes
It was at a place where retired vets live and we had a bunch of clothing and housing stuff donated.
food, jumping castle and I my job was face painting with little ones.

 yarn+ arizona spring (which is pretty much summer) doesn't really work out
so I made these cute bows which are in fun springy/summer colors!
little yarn hair bows.

and these cute rings

Ive been taking pictures of everything trying to learn how to use my new camera
this was a mess up picture since its out of focus but I like how my hair looks 
and it make my skin look so golden.

chocolate brown

I have ombre hair right now
but I'm getting kind of sick of it and I cant stop thinking about ONE tone hair 
chocolate brown!
I miss my dark brown locks.
trying to hold out till after summer

 fall is a good time to back to dark. 
but once I get my mind on something 
Its hard for me to resist.

What do you think? 
ombre vs dark brown?

feeling bubbly

last night was one big mess of crazy

loading myself up with stuff that inspires me.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now.
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before

you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing everyday that scares you

Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
people who are reckless with yours.
Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t.
Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.
Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young.
Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders.
Respect your elders.
Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out.
Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85.
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth.
But trust me on the sunscreen…

My finger tattoo is probably my favorite and most seen tattoo that I have
Some of mine are super hidden and I never get to see them. 
I look at my little heart everyday and I love it a lot. 
Its perfect and simple. 

radeo. my favorite.

I searched her tumblr for like an hour looking for her finger tats
they say lady like!
I love it.

I hope you have someone who loves you for you. 

Everybody should have at least one friend who 

loves you and your quirky-ness. Someone who 

will view your nerdy side, dysfunctional 

family, odd sense of humor, and crazy clothes 

as, “intelligence, loving family, great sense 

of humor, and fantastic clothing style.” You 

deserve to be loved. There is someone out there 

waiting so patiently right now for someone like 



flower princess

flower crowns.
saw a diy on calico skies and had to make my own


 1 // 2 //3 // 4

DIY flower crown. they are everywhere!
and super easy to make
It cost me less than 5 dollars to make this.
flowers (dollar store) 
I got big ones then didnt like how big it was so used small daisies I had lying around.
Thick and thin floral wire (also dollar store)
hot glue

I made the wire crown to fit my head, made it a little bigger because the flowers made it tighter.
took a few flowers wrapped them in the skinny wire and glued it to the crown. 
it takes some playing around with the make them lay flat.
